When I was on Arran delivering the Oak Door
I spied this sliver of wood
It turned out to be Green Heart from the old pier on Arran
They were cutting it up for firewood and this piece was deemed
not good enough to burn. :)
My Mum & Faither went to Arran on their Honeymoon
So they stood on this very Pier.
So it has been sitting in the drive bugging me
So yesterday I decided to make something out of it
This is the result, VERY rustic (or should I say Rough)
Picture 5 is for Mads, nice Cigars fae the Scandinavian Tobacco Co.
It is about 30”w 15” h & 10” deep. Although I have not measured it
I’m still using no tape or square, trying still to get the taste of that square
unit out of my system, yuck!
Oil finish then my beeswax paste wax on top
I made up a batch of black paste wax for the rough parts crevices
I’ll post picture six when I’ve done this.
The tusks are ebony.
in another wonderfully sunny day in Scotland
life dont get much better :)
